There’s Buzzfeed video (I’ll include it at the bottom of this post) called 36 Questions Women Have For Men.
I thought I’d give answering them a whirl.
1. How does it feel to be the same sex as Donald Trump?
I’m also the same sex as Albert Einstein and Leonardo da Vinci.
2. Why do you hate rom coms?
I don’t. I actually like quite a few of them. I’ve watched Jerry Maguire more times than I’d like to admit and The Notebook makes me choke up.
I do think they’re often unrealistic, but I enjoy quite a few of them.
3. Why do you make women sit around and talk about men in movies when you all will easily sit around and talk about boobs for hours?
I’m guessing because some women like watching women in movies talk about their good looking costars.
Guys don’t sit around for hours talking about boobs any more than women sit around and talk about ripped abs for hours.
4. Why do you automatically assume that you won’t like TV shows or movies that star a female lead?
I don’t care if the lead is male or female. I just finished watching the first season of Jessica Jones and absolutely loved it. There are a lot of movies I like that have female leads. All I care about is whether the movie or show is entertaining.
5. Why are you surprised when women are funny?
I’m not. Some of the women I’ve known throughout my life have been some of the funniest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. There are a ton of female stand-up comics that I find hilarious, such as Ellen DeGeneres.
6. Why do you think we’re obsessed with you when we hook up?
Personally, I don’t. If the relationship is new and you’re not interested, I’ll move on. I’m not going to beg you to be with me.
7. Why can’t I sleep with as many people as I want without being judged? When men do it, they’re congratulated.
Because it’s a shitty societal expectation. I’m with you on this one – I think we are far too uptight about sex and there shouldn’t be a double standard. I do think this is changing slowly.
8. Why do you consider a woman a tease if she doesn’t sleep with you after three dates, but a slut if she sleeps with you on the first date?
I don’t. I think they can have sex whenever they want. I think individuals have different wants and needs. There are women who (hypothetically) if I didn’t have sex with them or at least show interest in having sex with them after three dates, would question whether I was really interested in them. Maybe they walk away, maybe they question me or maybe they just wait it out.
9. In what world does no mean yes?
None. Believe it or not, the vast, vast, vast majority of men aren’t rapists.
Hard to believe, right?
10. Why do you say women are too emotional to be leaders then justify catcalling by saying that men can’t control themselves?
I don’t think women are too emotional to be leaders. My bosses are all women, except one. They do a terrific job.
I also think men can control themselves. I’ve never heard a man that I’ve known say otherwise. To say men can’t control themselves is insulting. I’m not an animal incapable of self-control.
11. Why do you think that just because you’re nice to me, I owe you my body?
I don’t. That’s a stupid question. I’m nice to women all the time, just as I am to men. I don’t think any of them owe me their body. How ridiculous.
12. Why would you ever send an unsolicited dick pic?
Okay, I agree with this one. If you’re a guy, why do you do this? It’s stupid and isn’t likely to attract a woman.
There is an option though. You can block and delete them. Depending on the circumstances, you can also report them.
13. Why do you think its okay to harass women or make offensive comments about women, but when someone does it to your sister it’s not okay?
Why do some women think it’s okay to call men ‘little bitches‘ because they were suffering severe side-effects after testing male birth control?
I don’t think harassing anyone is okay, whether they’re male or female. I find it hard to believe you don’t understand why humans might be more apt to protect people in their immediate family over a complete stranger though.
I’ve known plenty of people who were ‘big sisters’ and a good percentage of them were protective of their brothers, but they might not bat an eye if another boy they didn’t know was being picked on.
